New Courts Marisule Com­plex Of­fi­cially Un­veiled

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

Uni­comer (Saint Lu­cia) Lim­ited, un­der its retail brand Courts, hosted the of­fi­cial rib­bon cut­ting cer­e­mony for its new Marisule store and ad­min­is­tra­tive of­fices on Tues­day 6th De­cem­ber, 2016. The new Courts Marisule store boasts a 20,000 square foot show­room filled with the very lat­est in home ap­pli­ances, elec­tron­ics and a wide range of stylish fur­ni­ture as well as Courts Op­ti­cal in one of the largest retail spa­ces in the OECS.

In at­ten­dance dur­ing this ceremonial rib­bon cut­ting were the Vice Chair­man and Ex­ec­u­tive Vice Pres­i­dent of the Uni­comer Group, Mr. Guillermo Si­man, and Vice Pres­i­dent and Di­rec­tor of Uni­comer Group, Mr. Rodolfo Si­man. Lo­cal dig­ni­taries present in­cluded Saint Lu­cia’s Head of State, Gov­er­nor Gen­eral Her Ex­cel­lency Dame Pear­lette Louisy, Prime Min­is­ter Hon. Allen Chastanet, and Min­is­ter in the Of­fice of the Prime Min­is­ter Hon. Bradley Felix who de­liv­ered the fea­ture ad­dress. Also there were Uni­comer se­nior man­age­ment of­fi­cials, em­ploy­ees and rep­re­sen­ta­tives from var­i­ous lo­cal and re­gional firms who con­trib­uted to­wards the ex­e­cu­tion of this project.

In his wel­come re­marks Mr. Er­rol Le Blanc, Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor for Uni­comer OECS, in­formed the gath­er­ing of the back story which ul­ti­mately re­sulted in this new struc­ture: “The orig­i­nal com­pound was com­pletely de­stroyed by fire in 2010 and a tem­po­rary store was quickly es­tab­lished at this lo­ca­tion so as not to dis­rupt the ser­vice to our cus­tomers. Two years ago we started work on this com­pound to re­build the store and to­day, Courts Marisule stands big­ger and bet­ter than ever be­fore.”

Vice Pres­i­dent and Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor for Uni­comer Caribbean and United States, Mr. Mario Guer­rero, in his ad­dress high­lighted the com­mit­ment of the Uni­comer Group to the de­vel­op­ment of Saint Lu­cia. He proudly stated, “The open­ing of this new build­ing is but the lat­est man­i­fes­ta­tion of our Group’s com­mit­ment to the coun­try and the peo­ple of Saint Lu­cia. In the ten years since Uni­comer bought the Caribbean op­er­a­tions of Courts plc in ad­min­is­tra­tion, our Group has re­it­er­ated, through tan­gi­ble ac­tions, a cor­po­rate com­mit­ment to par­tic­i­pate pos­i­tively in the de­vel­op­ment of the coun­try and to re­main an in­te­gral part of the lives of Saint Lu­cians ev­ery­where.”

Uni­comer con­stantly of­fers a wide range of prod­ucts with com­pet­i­tively priced credit pro­grammes tai­lored to the needs of con­sumers, and has in­vested mil­lions of dol­lars in in­fra­struc­ture projects, such as the mod­ern distribution cen­tre and the Marisule com­plex, in a quest to de­liver ever im­prov­ing ex­cep­tional cus­tomer ex­pe­ri­ence.

“We have also in­creased head­count and in­vested sig­nif­i­cantly in staff de­vel­op­ment pro­grammes, and sup­ported nu­mer­ous NGOs con­tribut­ing to dif­fer­ent health pro­grammes across the is­land to reach those who are most vul­ner­a­ble and in need of a help­ing hand. We are par­tic­u­larly proud of our spon­sor­ship of the Courts OECS Schools Read­ing Com­pe­ti­tion, a pro­gramme es­tab­lished in 2009 to pro­mote lit­er­acy through­out the OECS,” said Mr. Guer­rero.

Fol­low­ing the of­fi­cial rib­bon cut­ting the dig­ni­taries and in­vited guests en­joyed a pri­vate view­ing and cock­tail re­cep­tion.

The new Courts Marisule com­plex - Saint Lu­cia’s new flag­ship store - stands tall as a fur­ther in­di­ca­tion of the com­pany’s com­mit­ment to Bring­ing Value Home.
